Bottle sample at RBWG. Pours brown in color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor had roasted malt, nuts, a little cocoa and some earthy bitterness. A bit better than their APA.

Look: pours a dark brown. Dark red color when held to the light. White head that turns into thick lacing. Smell: ripe dark fruit smell. Cherries and raisins. Strong malt Taste: strong cherries. Maybe a red apple Feel: not to thick but a good beer. Nice carbonation. Smooth a lifter taste. Overall: not a bad beer. Sweet on the nose and tongue.

12 ounce bottle from Libation Station. Pours a clear bright dark red with a large frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of dark fruits, brown malts, nuts. The taste is toffee malts, red apple, dark fruits, citrus hops. Thin-medium bodied. Solid beer, exceeded my expectations.
